Appeal of the Department

  • Learn a wide range of business management theories and enhance your practical expertise

    Business Administration is the "study of the efficient operation of organizations." The term "organization" here includes corporations, non-profit and governmental organizations, clubs and classes. For example, one of the most important goals of a corporation is to maximize sales and profit. The question is, "How do we maximize sales?" or "How do we grow sales with less money?”. The study of business administration is an effort to scientifically search for answers to these questions. Studying business administration also means acquiring the ability to solve various problems and issues associated with organizational management. Another attraction of business administration is that students can acquire skills that can be applied to various organizations.
